Well the first attempt to get some decent shots came close, but I felt I still needed to get some more material. There was one idea in particular that I thought would work, but where to go.
How about a trip to our local National Trust Stately Home?
So we packed the car with the Medium Format Camera gear, tripod and once again the Nikon D200 with the Macro 105mm f/2.8 Lens, which is what I was intending to use to get ‘The Shot’ I had in my head.
The weather had potential, light rain, but very dark black skies. There was a hint of potential sunshine breaking through later.
We arrived at Belton House near Grantham at lunch time, shortly after they had opened. The hint of sunshine vanished so I left the Medium Format Gear in the boot of the car, but still took the D200.
Around the Italian garden I got a number of lovely shots as the sun once again appeared.
I also attempted the shot I had in my head as the ‘Photo of the Month’. Did I succeed well as you can see above I did manage some excellent atmospheric photographs.
Tomorrow I’ll publish my Photo of the Month and you can judge for yourself.
